The training is intended for our J5/J8 Part B providers billing on a CMS-1500 or electronic equivalent.

Medicare’s Depression Screening benefit is underutilized in J5 and J8 even though the prevalence of depression is relatively high. Would you like to learn more about coverage and proper documentation for the benefit? Let us help. This webinar covers:
• General documentation requirements
• Documentation specific for depression screening
• Tips for completing documentation.
We will also review sample documentation and examples of tools to complete the screening.

After course registration, participants can complete Learning Center modules for questions/comments on the benefit. First, a module that will help identify barriers keeping providers from performing the service. Second, a module allows submission of questions to address during the live event.
Once you register, complete the following steps:
• Login to the WPS GHA Learning Center
